Please pray for my husband’s boss, Grayson, who was taken away from work in an ambulance today. He had minimal vitals & was unconscious & they were doing CPR on him for a while. It appears to be heart related, given the CPR, but could also be a diabetic situation too.

Prayers that Grayson is OK, that the Lord is with him & guides the doctors in his treatment.

Thank you for these prayers, Joe. The outlook is currently pretty grim. Please lift up his wife & kids & the company which will have a pretty big desk chair to fill in Grayson’s absence. God Bless…

I pray for Grayson to receive complete recovery and that his family may be blessed with good news of wellness for Grayson.
Thank you for this lovely prayer. It is only answered in the affirmative if Grayson is with the Lord. He took his family to church but we don’t know about his personal relationship to God. Sadly he didn’t make it on Friday…but we didn’t know for sure until yesterday.
His family & co-workers are still reeling from his sudden & untimely loss. There have been many tears & prayers for those left behind. Thanks so much for lifting this situation to The Throne. Blessings…
I’m so sorry to hear this. Prayers of comfort & strength for his family & coworkers.
Thanks Joe for everyone really needs the Lord’s help to get through this very difficult time. Blessings
I am very sorry to hear of this loss. When I grieved an unexpected death, I found help in a book: I Wasn’t Ready to say Good-bye. It had many chapters that validated how I felt, what I was going through, things that seemed others did not think about. In the context of the immediate event, there may be support but life quickly may go on for others. At two years out, I feel my loss every day, yet it is rare but most gratefully acknowledged to have my loved one and my loss remembered. It is an enormous service and gift to comfort those who grieve, in the immediate shock, and more so as time goes on and others are caught up in other things. Thank you for caring for Grayson and his family. My prayers continue for all of you.
Thank you for these insights…& I am so sorry for your own loss. My husband was/is mightily impacted in multiple ways: he really loved his boss (the best one he’d ever had); he saw him collapsed in his office chair & upon reflection thinks it was if he might have already been dead then for he pretty much looked gone; earlier in the day his boss was looking him in the eye like he wanted to say something but the moment passed & that was their last conversation w/no chance to say goodbye & no “closure”; Grayson was a buffer between that location & his immediate superior who is a real hard-a type who was & is making work miserable for everyone–the stress of his presence may even have been a contributing factor in G’s death; a couple days previously my husband had a conversation w/G saying that he wanted a heads up whenever G was going to retire so he could consider looking for other work for he really didn’t want to work there after G was gone, & G (“jokingly”) replied that he’d never retire but they’d probably find him dead in his office chair–which is very close to what actually happened; we don’t know if G is with the Lord so can’t Rely on that comfort (yet, hopefully the funeral, which is delayed until early February, will provide clarification).
Thankfully yesterday was a little better for my husband & son, who also works at that location, than was Monday…but it is still a very difficult & heavy time. We really appreciate your prayer support & heartfelt words of encouragement & perspective.
Prayers of comfort for you, too, friend. God bless.

THE BAT IS UNWELL
The old bat had open heart, quintuple bypass surgery on Thursday, January 10. I am doing very well but I would really appreciate your prayers.
Thank you for posting this Valerie. ❤
You’re welcome…the more prayer (warriors) the better! Thanks for all you do around the Treehouse too–you rock!
Prayers for our friend The Bat.
Prayers for you Devilbat that God will give you a complete and quick recovery.
Prayers for your speedy and full recovery. Love your posts and pictures. You are an important part of my daily reading.
Thanks…I hope the “bat” checks in to the prayer thread to read these lovely thoughts…
I would appreciate your prayers for my family and me. I got a call from my niece today. My sister, my only sibling, is dying. They put her on hospice. Her kidneys are shutting down. She has been in and out of the hospital so much. She is in so much pain. She wants to go and is ready to go. It breaks my heart.
My sister is in southern Illinois. I had the last seat booked on a flight tomorrow but bad weather changed that. It is seven degrees with ice and snow. They wanted me to get a rental car. I have never driven in snow and ice and not gonna do it now. So my niece in Louisville, Ky. will pick me up at the airport in Evansville, Indiana, and then we will drive to Illinois. I will be returning on Sunday so Gary won’t be alone too long. Wanted him to go and my daughter offered to buy him a ticket too as she did mine but we couldn’t find anyone to stay with the dogs.
I am grateful I had the epidurals. If this had happened Xmas I wouldn’t have been able to get on a plane and sit a couple of hours and walk off. I will be taking my walker so will be okay I think. .
Prayers for safe travel for you, justfacts, that you may be with your sister. I am so so sorry for everything you’re going through right now. May God keep you & be with you & your family.
This is hard. She is my only sibling and I am so sad to have to let her go. I am comforted that she will be joining other family members in heaven. Thank you for your prayer support.
Praying that you will have a safe trip to see your sister. May God bless you and help you to comfort your sister during this time. I’m so thankful the epidurals have helped you and now you are able to travel. May a God bless you and your family.
Thank you Ddanna for all of your prayers for me and my family.
Praying that you and your sister are given comfort, peace and that Divine attention be directed to answer your prayers and supply your needs.
Justfacts my heart is with you. It is difficult to say goodbye to a sibling, someone you have shared your life from childhood. My prayers are with you and your family…
Hi Prayer Warriors,
I’m asking for continued prayer for my son who is in so much distress. We found him a Christian counselor, however I think he needs a neurologist of someone to assess if he has OCD. Insurance is always an issue but I’d sell my house to see him get well. He’s supposed to go on a retreat this weekend which will be good for him. Pray that he does well and we’re doing the right thing letting him go. He isn’t suicidal or anything like that, just feels like he’s letting God down. Nothing we say has helped. Please, pray for my beautiful boy, who is such a good kid and for my husband and I that we get to the right people involved.
I don’t know how old your son is….but my son went through so much distress as a teen and a young man. Bi-polar type distress. Flirted with suicide and self harm. He committed himself into a mental institution at 22 yo. It was a horrible place, even though he really liked talking to the other patients there. The docs put him on lithium..which turned my beautiful son into a zombie. just horrible. I forgot to say that as a pre-teen the docs wanted him to take drugs for ADHD. I refused to do that to such a brilliant albeit difficult kid to steer in the right direction. he was always a straight A student. I decided to just support him and find out how to direct his behavior into constructive areas…cooking, reading, chores, lots of things. I tried to not make excuses for him and just loved the heck outta him.
At 24 he joined the Navy and became a corpsman for the Marines. He spent time in Afghanistan and was loved by his Marines saving many lives.
Fast forward to present day. I just spent time with him. He just turned 35 and is about to graduate with his masters degree. Again all A’s in a very intensive program. He has a wonderful girlfriend who is brilliant in every way. Marriage is around the corner.
I know the angst and worry, but I did for my son and do have faith for your son that things will work out. Love, honesty, and discipline go a long way.
Prayers for you and your son.
Forgot to add. There were many arguments and challenges over the years about my parenting skills. Well, now i get 2 phone calls a week “to see how Im doing” and to tell me how much he loves me and thanks for putting up with him… SWEET!!!!
Eve thanks so much for sharing your story with your son. I’m so happy for the outcome and I will have faith there will be victory.
Continued prayers for your son, pj. God bless.
Please pray for this precious lady who shared this heart-wrenching need on today’s Open Thread, perhaps go to that page to respond directly to her with your comfort & prayers:
Thank you for your many prayers for those of us in need. God Bless you all!

I come to this heading ,”Our Father” heading and not to respond to Mama Tea, but
To respond to the prayers. This my favorite site. I come this part of the tree house
Be Cause of the comments. I came to this site when my husband died and again when my brother died. It sooths me and my inner being.
Late today I come again to read to myself The Lords Prayer.
My house has been empty for the past two days and I come back at night
To care for pets return calls and take care of home. What strange post you say.
Today is the 25th. On the 23 rd you son was hijacked or kidnapped by a man or men
At 5:00Am in his jams robe and slippers. For two days his whereabouts were unknown.
Today was the last meeting with law enforcement. His Dodge Ram was found burned
In a field far from home. It took a longer to find my son. He was found still in his
Jams robe and slippers crammed in a lean to by an old abandoned house. No graphic
Description is needed here. Two white guys (yes I said that) meth drug people decided
To go for a ride that day. They took my son from the porch on his house and murdered
him. For what? Law said habitual petty crimes and drugs. Not good enough for me and
mine. Justice none. One chose suicide by cops. One is in a lockdown.
The remains of our loved one are in the hands of the state. His remains are a crime scene. His beautiful wife and two beautiful children are in his home with her family
Mourning. His mother has come home to her house to begin to make his
funeral arrangements .
His name is Stoney and will forever be
He was the baby of our family. On the 29th he would have celebrated his 48th
Pray for us
To X’schild: Praying for you and yours.
John 16:22 – And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.
May your faith be strong as a mountain wall,
And subtle as the early morning mists.
May you believe that God’s power conquers all,
And his love through trouble and pain persists.
May your faith soar like a multi-colored bird,
And shine brighter than the blinding desert sun.
Because you know your prayers are ever heard
And Jesus waits when the final day is done.
And may God bless you,
The Father who rules the starry skies,
The Son who rose from the dead,
And the Spirit who comes in hope.
From x’s child. Today is Sunday and mass at church was held in honor of son, father and
brother. His name is Stoney Qualls and will always be. Our family has always been blessed to have him in our lives. He will always be known as the baby boy. Our family is together during this time we are in the hands of Our Lord and Jesus Christ. Without
our beliefs and family structure we would not be able to move on.
All pray for us during this time. If we have hate and anger coming and has it never been there before.
Our family going far back in time has generated generations of good Samaritans. We step back to re-evaluate how we live and not question whether or not we extend a helping hand. May God forgive us for our thoughts of shunning our fellow man.
Peace be with you and may you all be blessed.
Donna, your Irish prayer sooths me because we are Irish. We come from Irish going
back in time. My father would especially love that. Thank you.
As I spend time with my Christian family both here at CTH and in everyday life, I’m reminded that we’ll all be caught up with Jesus to shed no more tears and feel no more pain. I hope we get to recognize each other in Heaven and have a great big hug! You all are awesome.
Please pray for me this afternoon, I have an appointment with a specialist in Oncology/Hemotology. If I were to say I’m not scared it would be untrue. Primary told me they may admit me from the specialist office, to get testing done since my numbers are horrible,
If it is in Gods will, I am asking Him for spiritual and physical strength, with the least amount of problems to get through the immediate timeframe. Thank you for your prayers.
A okay! Thank you.
Great news! God bless.
I’m so glad to hear everything went okay for you!
May the Lord be with you & provide you the comfort, peace, strength, & even joy in the midst of sorrows (& uncertainty) you need to face these challenges.
Hopefully above you’ll see some scriptures on strength & God’s provision for you…

For mid-old timers like me, this works.. love you guys When Sharon’s(1 of our beloved Mod’s)DH fell ill 🤒,there was an opening.
I submitted my Grammie’ story to CRH/MBOB…
the rest is history.
Please pray for Grandpa Darwin her spouse.
Hospice 4 months. Fluid in lungs. Not eating.
It is “his time”.
We’re all good,just prayers please.
The good ones are falling. 6 children, same baby father…70 years married.
Take that oBama
Dear Carterzest – Oh, yes, the good ones are falling. They are each irreplaceable – their lives so valuable, so beloved.
If I may, make a slight tweak to your sweet comment – it was just after my husband’s death in the spring of 2014 that we made such satisfying and fun use of your Grammie’s story. It was two years later that I was diagnosed and then received successful treatment.
I would encourage anyone who likes the realities and memories of the old times to check out Carterzest’s Grandma’s writing. Here is a link to the first of the series, and you should be able to find the others from that point, I think! If not just do a search in the box on the front page using the title that is used for this one and it will bring them all up.
Carterzest, my friend – may your family notice and receive unexpected blessings and strengths during these impossible days that you did not choose. Here’s a hug for you all (*****) Give one another your presence – that has highest value, always.

Well, I’m embarrassed……you stated the memory of our collaboration accurately. There was no need for my “tweak”. Sheesh. (Not my first rodeo for speaking first and thinking later – – my apologies)
So Darwin passed early evening 1-30-19.
From my Mom this Morning:
“My dad died early last night after telling my brother Xxxxx he felt a lot of energy. Leaned back, closed his eyes. Stopped breathing. Service has been planned for a couple of months. Will know place and time in Roseburg soon. Because of my brother Xxxxx’s position in the church there will be world wide interest so it will be webcast. Will send the link when I have it.
Xxxx, Xxxx and I will be in Roseburg tomorrow night. All are heartbroken, relieved and lots of other emotions. Mom is exhausted but has so much support from family and church. Thanks for your support
The craziest thing about Darwin and Maxine is that they were not remotely religious until after the six kids were grown and out of the house. Son Darrel is now the “Pope” of the Apostolic Faith Church. Because of that, the funeral will be webcast worldwide 🌎.
That was so awesome that you posted some of Grammie Maxine’s story.
Love to you and your family, Sharon.
Prayers of comfort to you & your family, Carterzest.
Dear Carterzest – thank you so much for this continued sharing from that little clearing in the forest where your family is gathering now.
Your line referencing “….heartbroken, relieved, and lots of other emotions” says so much. Yes. All of that.
We love you and care for you in these days as you love and care for one another. Love to you and your family as well –
We attended my husband’s boss’s memorial service yesterday & were so thankful to learn that Grayson is with the Lord!!! It is still a very difficult adjustment for Michael but the Lord has been faithful to lift his spirits periodically through the grief & darkness.
My brother Curtis is apparently facing that neck surgery to remove the tumor in his spine in the middle of this month. He & his wife Dawn have been bathed in prayer & are still hopeful that the Lord would heal him apart from surgery. Dawn has written a beautiful post about keeping the focus on the Lord through worship, even (especially) when going through difficult & dark times. I share this post here in case it might bless you too.
Thank the Lord for the precious Treehouse where we can “share each other’s burdens in love & so fulfill the law of Christ.” God bless you all.
Hopefully above you will see some scriptural encouragements about light overcoming darkness…
Thank you for sharing Dawn’s wonderful uplifting post, Valerie. I pray that the Lord will bring Curtis through this no matter what His will might be.
Although this isn’t someone I know personally, I wanted to pray for the Pope as he is having a probably very dangerous open air Mass in Dubai tonight at 1:30am Eastern Time. 100,000 people are expected to attend as part of Abu Dhabi’s “Year of Tolerance”.
an update On Mandy’s new heart. Mandy’s tests have all been excellent! She may get to finally go home next week. Thank you to all the Treepers for their prayers. She is truly one of God’s miracles!
Please pray for my Dad. Had a massive stroke in ICU. We love him, please ask God to protect him.

We need to pray for this male pittie dog to be healed of his horrific injuries. Imagine doing this to an innocent canine. Then pray that the jerk who did this is brought to justice.
RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) — A dog that was tied to a pole and intentionally set on fire is being cared for by Richmond Animal Care and Control.
RACC said the dog, a male pit bull, was tied up in Abner Clay Park off Clay Street on Sunday night, covered with a flammable liquid and set on fire.
The dog, which has been named Tommie, suffered burns to more than 40 percent of his body.
Witnesses said a man wearing multiple layers of pants was seen running from the area towards Belvidere Street.
Christie Chipps Peters of RACC says firefighters from Engine 5, which is nearby the park, quickly rushed over to put out the flames.
“They literally opened their bay doors and saw him on fire and ran across the street with their fire extinguishers,” she said.
Tommie is about to embark on a long recovery: he is now on a catheter, and his injuries are obstructing even basic functions.
“He doesn’t want to eat because the inside of his mouth is burned so severely,” Chipps Peters said.
In her 13 years with Animal Control, she said this incident stands out among the rest.
She added, “This one just sort of takes it to a different level of cruelty. There’s just such an evil component to it that’s so senseless.”
The shelter is hoping to save the dog, but said his survival is day to day. If he lives, RACC officials say the recovery will long and expensive, thousands of dollars. They are asking for the public’s help.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (804) 780-1000.
Update on the little pittie male, now named Tommie. Thanks for praying for him!
They need to find the SOB, tie him to a pole and set him on fire. See how he likes it. That is plain EVIL. I am praying for the little fella’s recovery.
I pray that the Lord will have the perp get caught, then brought up on the Virginia felony animal abuse law. Charged with the maximum. Serve time in the penitentiary. Maybe get some prison justice. Praying little Tommy is healed of his horrible injuries. Praying he is adopted by somebody who will love him furever.
I wish I had checked the news. This is very sad. Little Tommy has died. So lets pray that his abuser is caught and brought to justice.
A dog that was set on fire in Richmond on Sunday has died.
Richmond Animal Care and Control posted on Facebook, writing, “I’m so very sorry to share that Tommie just passed away. He had just finished having his bandages changed and stopped breathing; his body simply gave out. Tommie was pain free and surrounded by people that loved him when he passed.”
The post went on to say employees were all “devastated, angry sad, and terribly disappointed.” It also thanked the Virginia Veterinary Centers and the VCU Evans-Haynes Burn Center.
Thanks to the generosity of one of the many people who donated to the shelter for Tommie’s care, the pit bull will be laid to rest at the Pet Memorial Cemetery on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 4 p.m.
“This event will be open to the public for anyone who wants to say goodbye,” RACC said on a Facebook event page.
Donations and support for Tommie had poured in all week; he took his first steps since being burned on Thursday.
However, his burn wounds went from affecting forty percent of his body to affecting his entire body, and staff from the burn center had to make changes to Tommie’s treatment plan.
Earlier this week, City Councilwoman Kim Gray said she has been working with Richmond Police to put more security at Abner Clay Park where the incident took place. Gray said the park has been a part of her life for years, and that she was taken back knowing that someone could be capable of such cruelty.
“Anyone who’s this cruel to animals is a pretty depraved individual, and it’s scary to think that they’re walking around among us,” Gray said. [for rest of article, see this URL]
So awful. That poor, precious animal.
Geezus, that is EVIL.
Prayers for Tommie!
Prayers for everyone and every living thing to find food and shelter in this cold weather.
Here’s an update on my brother Curtis’ situation, following his surgery today–from my Mom:
“Curtis’ wife, Dawn called to report that surgery is completed (2:45) and that the removal of the tumor was successfully accomplished with no apparent complication. Curtis will be flat on his back for the next 24 hours and be in the hospital for several days before discharge. The biopsy report should be available later today.
They and we thank each one of you who have prayed along with us during this journey….. and we shall continue to pray that healing will be without infection nor complication and full function and disappearance of prior pain will have been achieved as anticipated.
All I have in my heart at this moment is gratitude for the grace and peace that God has continued to pour out over the need and resolution thus far. We are, indeed, blessed beyond measure at the faithfulness of so many to carry this burden to the Lord on the behalf our of son and wife! May your own needs and concerns be lifted by others before the throne of grace, as well!
Love to each and everyone who has traveled with us,
Elaine and Bill”
Thank you so much for lifting so many in my family in prayer over the past couple of years that I have been a Treeper. This ministry of prayer is such a tremendous blessing for us all…
-in Christ’s Love
Here’s a bit more from my mom on Curtis’ situation–Blessings!
“Yup…we are praising the Lord for the good report…. Don’t have the biopsy report but I guess the surgeon and assistants were amazed at how easily the tumor was removed….with one this size, they are usually adhered to something and much more difficult to remove intact. God is amazing…..and we also are still praying for no unforseen complications….”
That is wonderful news! God is deserving of so much praise!
Yes & Amen!!! 🙂
Valerie, my heart is bursting at this news! Thank the Lord that the surgery went so well!
Thank you Joe for your prayers & your contagious Joy. God Bless YOU!
Here’s the latest on my brother Curtis’ situation, from my mom:
“Just spoke briefly with Dawn…..Rough night but he seems on track and may be discharged on Friday. They will start to elevate his bed when the 24 hrs is up flat…..by 10% incriments to see if it causes an instant headache which would indicate a leakage of certrospinal [sic probably cerebral-spinal] fluid…and hopefully be able to get him upright sitting on the edge of the bed..then in a chair and maybe a short walk by tonight.”
When my son had his brain tumor removed (years ago) it was done through the nose & they had to watch for cerebral-spinal fluid leaking nasally. He wasn’t allowed to use his CPAP for at least 6 months to ensure that his nasal passages weren’t more stressed during the healing process. Well, being on the autism spectrum once he gets out of a habit it is extremely hard to get him back into it. He still is iffy & very inconsistent w/CPAP & also w/ taking his BP’s–something he needs to do so we have at least Some objective data before his appointment with Nephrology next month.
Thanks for praying for my brother, his wife, my parents, my husband (who is still struggling significantly most days since his boss Grayson’s death), & Josiah. I greatly appreciate the prayers of the saints for all these needs.
God Bless YOU & supply all that You need through His riches in glory in Christ Jesus!
–hopefully above you’ll see some Valentine’s themed scriptures…in Christ’s Love…
Wow! That acrostic is simply amazing.
Yes there are several versions using a Bing.com image search for “scripture valentine” (didn’t use quotation marks in the search) in case you’d like to find an image with a different “flavor”. Blessings…
Thank you prayer warriors for praying for my family and me. I finally arrived in Illinois only two hours before my sister died. She was in a coma but I believe she could hear me and knew I was there. Everyone said she was waiting for me..
The days following were quite hectic. The night of the viewing it snowed and the morning of the funeral it was one degree with a wind chill factor of minus twenty five. This Florida girl nearly froze to death.
My sister’s five children and their church had a beautiful Celebration of life type of funeral for my sister. It was a beautiful service and I learned wonderful things about my sister that I had not known. A bagpipe player played Amazing Grace.
The epidurals wore off the second day I was there. There was so much getting into and out of various vehicles and everywhere I went there were stairs. The night I flew back home I was running a fever and spent the next ten days with Influenza A.
Also please pray for my eyesight along with my leg and back. I have lost a lot of sight and went to the eye doctor and they saw something in my eyes and are sending me tomorrow to a retina specialist.
Lori is still waiting for the referral to a neurosurgeon but has seen a neurologist. She was back in the hospital this past weekend. They did a CT scan of her neck, chest, and pelvis. They discovered another birth defect called Tracheomalacia. I don’t know what will be done about that. I am so worried about her and wish she weren’t so far away.
Sorry this was so long but had so much to catch up on since I haven’t been on here for awhile.
I am glad that you got to be there with your sister, justfacts. The service does sound like it was beautiful. Amazing Grace on the bagpipes is one of my favorite sounds in the world.
Praying that the eye doctor can help you with your vision. And continued prayers for Lori as well. May the Lord bless you & keep you.
Thank you joe for your continued prayers. I can’t see well right now so please excuse any typos. My new glasses should be in on the 20th. I went to the specialist today to have more testing done. It is macular degeneration. Both my mother and grandmother went blind with it. They have come a long way since then in treatments. Hopefully I won’t go blind for awhile.
God bless you for your faithfulness to this wonderful prayer thread.
Dear JFP, Thank you for sharing this update about the difficulties & challenges you & your family have been facing…you have been in my heart, mind, & prayers. What a blessing that you got to be with your sister before she passed & could join in the celebration of her homegoing!
Dear Lord, please be with JFP & lift her, Lori, & Gary to your throne of grace. May You be their sufficiency in all things. Provide your healing, comfort, favor, grace, peace, perseverance, presence, love, & joy to each of them…in increasing measure. Surround them with a tangible sense of your love & mercy as they walk these challenging paths.
May the Lord continue to bless, keep, encourage, strengthen, & overshadow YOU.
In Christ’s Love
Hopefully you will see some encouraging scriptures above…
Valerie, I was feeling pretty down and defeated when I read your post. Your beautiful prayer on our behalf touched my heart and mind and encouraged me. I really did find the scriptures most helpful. Thank you so much!
Thank you for sharing this, JFP. I feel low so many times & feel like I’m speaking to the wind online &/or in person so am so very thankful & blessed that these touched you.
So many of those scripture images really minister to me & I’m glad they’ve touched you too! May the Lord continue his blessed work in your heart & life…& in those you love.
Here’s a brief post I recently did that contains some encouraging scriptures too:
Blessings, Peace, Joy, & Love to YOU, in & through Christ Jesus Our Lord!
Justfactsplz, my heart and prayers goes out to you on the loss of your sister!
I will say a prayer for you her as well as you and Lori!
God bless you Justfactsplz! Know you aren’t alone or forgotten during heart breaking times!
Thank you The Defiant One! I am having a bit of a tough time since returning home. I battled the flu and recovered from that but the constant pain with my leg is almost unbearable. That with losing my sister and worried about lori has got me down. I need to rest in the Lord and He will strengthen me. Thank you so much for your prayers.
Hi Justfactsplz, have you seen a doctor yet about the pain in your leg?
Yes, and I go again next week. Part of it is nerve pain from a bad back and part of it is because I need a hip replacement in that leg too. I had just recovered from two hip revision surgeries on the other leg when my back when crazy and the discs blew out. Then the other hip wore out too.
97 days and a new heart and Mandy got to go home today! God is good all the time!
Terrific news, BG! May God continue to bless Mandy always.
Praise God! I share in our joy over mandy’s successful surgery.
Thanks to everyone that prayed for my Dad. He had a major stroke but can talk. His left side is paralyzed and he has to go to rehab.
The problem is he keeps trying to escape to go home….pulled out his feeding tube because he can’t swallow yet.
So until his “behavior” improves– I am told that he must have no restraints etc before he can rehab.
This has been difficult because of many issues with family visiting and needing attention for their grief while I’m trying to support my Dad’s progress.
I hope that some prayer can change hearts and become more productive for the issues at hand.
thanks to all the treepers that support my Dad with prayer.
Donna, I am just returning to the prayer thread after a bit of absence. Prayers for your Dad as he goes through the rehabilitation phase.. When Gary was first coming out of the coma they had to use restraints on him beause he kept pulling on the ventilator that was hooked up to his trachea. It is no fun trying to handle them in that state. Prayers for you too.
Prayers that the Lord will guide your dad through his rehab & fully restore him to health. I also pray that His peace will reign over your family. God bless, Donna.
